Yeah, that's what I said.  Somehow a crap game that's been in development for 12 years got snagged up by a good developer recently and now it looks amazeballs.

IDK about good developer. The game itself looks nice, but I was kind of excited for Snail Games' other game, Black Gold Online, and that ended up terrible with very poor support. Here is hoping that it'll be different for DnL.

I was one of the 8,881 original "Pioneers" that snagged a pre-order copy, and then apparently the 10,000 additional copies were gone in 80 seconds.

Here's my original e-mail as well, for posterity.

 

 

Congratulations emylights, on being amongst the 8,881 Pioneers!
 
We
 would like to take a moment to express our apologies for the server 
slowdowns and any confusion which may have been caused during the 
Pioneer Pack registration process. Despite this, we have been greatly 
encouraged by the overwhelming response we have received for the 
Settlers of Ganareth offer.
 
This email confirms that you 
purchased a Dark and Light activation key, which also entitles you to 
special benefits related to Settlers of Ganareth and to Dark and Light 
after launch.
Please keep this email in a safe place as you will need
 this information to activate your Dark and Light account at release 
time.
 
Your Pioneer login: emylights
You are Pioneer # 4315
 
Early
 April 2006, you will receive all the information you need regarding the
 use of your Dark and Light key and instructions on how to register your
 account in preparation for release. As you know, as a Pioneer, you are 
entitled to 48hours of exclusive access to the Dark and Light world at 
release, the exact date of which will be emailed to you closer to 
launch.
 
Your Pioneer benefits will apply to the character of 
your choice in your Settlers of Ganareth account, and will later be 
attributed to the character of your choice in Dark and Light.  You will,
 however be able to completely recreate your character in Dark and 
Light, only the alignment of the two characters will remain the same.
 
Remember to download Settlers of Ganareth in advance, in order to be ready at server launch!
 
See you soon on Ganareth!
 
The Dark and Light team

I was a "Pioneer" also and still lurking in  the shadows TEN years later and will most likely be playing D&L once again.

I just read the interview and I am not sure how an MMO style game with a survival theme will play out, but I think I will give it a try.

My only warning is that Snail games also ran Age of Wushu... into the ground.  ;/   Cash grab PTW shop,  gold spammers everywhere, cheating exploits, bots, and zero support or desire to address those same issues.  Ruined the game.

Cheating and exploits absolutely RUIN the online gaming environment. It is the fastest way to get me to start looking for another game to play. I REALLY hope it is NOT a cash shop, that may be a deal breaker for me.

I just saw this article on D&L and the  screenshots of the mobs look pretty amazing:http://www.mmorpg.co...ures-1000011253
